I like google glass, but I dont like the camera. same with I like Chromecast but I dont like that I cant use just anything with it. I like Chrome, its pretty fast and nice but I hate that it may or may not be keeping tabs on what I do or where I go (allegedly). if I could take out the camera and modify it to give me other information from the phone or whatever, that would be swell.

Speed means jack squat if you are being throttled. My ISP is the fastest of my area. But they don't tell you about their Accepted Use Policy or whatever they call it now. Regardless if you are a 'heavy user' or not.

I use linux on my laptop, And I have to use it where it gets pretty hot in the summer. I've tried many enviroments and I stick with the one that runs my laptop the coolest on idle. KDE is like Gnome 3, they run my laptop pretty hot. MATE (Gnome 2) and XFCE were the least demanding out of the more functional enviroments. I'm glad someone kept Gnome 2 alive with MATE and I'll keep using it since I used it the most these past 6-8 years. (using mint right now) KDE has been pretty nice when I had it on my desktop. 3.x ran pretty good on a really crappy AMD K6-II laptop and I I'd never get any work done playing with the sheer amount of customization you can do on the fly. 4.0 is pretty, but its not feaseable at least on this laptop.

It was kinda like stuffing the wrong card in a computer, when you're stickin' those artificial stimulants in your arm. -- Dion, noted computer scientist
